Final Fantasy Nets 3 Guinness World Records

Nude-Tifa-Materia-by-Suwicchi01

The widely acclaimed Final Fantasy franchise has recently found itself the recipient of no less than 3 Guinness world records, beating out the legendary Masako Nozawa in achievements and possibly inflating Square Enix’s already colossal collective ego in the process.

The highly reputed Final Fantasy XIV secured two of the records by possessing the longest ending credit sequence (38 minutes; which some have criticized to not be a “good” thing) and the most background music tracks (384 total), with the latter making quite a bit of sense given the expansiveness of an MMORPG.

The Final Fantasy franchise as a whole however attained the Guinness record for “most entries in a video game series”, championing 87 games including the 15 main ones, their sequels, spin-offs and all the other obscure side-games.

Naoki Yoshida, the director and producer of Final Fantasy XIV, traveled to Germany to accept the awards at EU Fanfest 2017.

    There's no problem, they're not credits you have to watch. The actual credits that play at the end of the story aren't anywhere near as long.

    This could have been Mighty No 9's claim to fame- it takes 4 hours for its credits to go by.

    Which is stupid as hell. As much hate as Undertale gets, what they did for adding their kickstarter backers into the credits: making it a playable section with a reward (in their case, dodging all the names, unlocking a secret developer room).

    I'm kinda surprised that Megaman lost in the most entries for a series as well.

    What about Mario? Look at every game with his name in the title... What counts as a franchise in this context anyway? If you count every side game, Mario easily passes 87.

    Capcom just doesn't have anyone decent to make them a Megaman game cheaply enough.

    FF14 got the longuest credits for a MMORPG (not the longuest of ALL games)
